At the 1924 general election, he was an unsuccessful candidate in the Labour held constituency of North Norfolk. He was defeated again by Labour's Noel Buxton at the 1929 general election, and at the by-election in 1930 when Lady Noel-Buxton held the seat with a majority of only 139 votes after her husband's elevation to the peerage.
Thomas Cook was a member of the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association and served on the Norfolk County Council. From 1930 to 1955 he ran the Norfolk Chronicle. He was county commissioner for the Norfolk St John Ambulance Brigade and Master of the Glaziers' Company in London.
